Ownership signature of Hieronymous Bannia[!?]. Fine. EXTREMELY RARE. "QUESTA IMPORTANTISSIMA OPERA" â€" RICCARDI. A monumental encyclopedia of physics written to complement Lana's Prodromo, 1670, by more thoroughly explaining the various theories advanced within. Sotheby & Willkinson stated, in their catalogue of the Guglielmo Libri Library, that one "would require an explanatory volume to give an idea of this work, which is truly a cyclopedia of all sciences connected with natural philosophy." Thorndike has written the most thorough account of the importance and content of this remarkable work. "Fourteen years went by before Lana Terzi began to issue the Mastery of Nature and Art, to which the Prodromo was to have been the portico, and its publication in three huge double-columned folio volumes extended over eight years. The long Latin title emphasizes the more occult principles of natural philosophy, experimentation and demonstration, 'almost all the inventions of the ancients and many new ones thought out by the author himself.' The second and third volumes in twenty-five books discuss as many varieties of motions of natural bodies, manifest and occult: namely, 1, the penetration of corpuscles through pores; 2, the motion of transportation through the pores of the body or concerning the effluvia of bodies; 3, the motion of the internal parts of any body; 4, liquefaction and concretion or coagulation, where are treated fluidity and consistency; 5, compression and pressure of bodies; 6, elasticity; 7, tension; 8, rarefaction and condensation; 9, tremor of bodies; 10, sound; 11, adherence of parts and resistance to discontinuity; 12, mixture, ready or difficult; 13, configuration or site; 14, assimilation; 15, excitation and fermentation; 16, maturation and crudescence; 17, corruption and putrefaction; 18, coagulation (again?), where, too, of concretion (again?) properly called and incrassation; 19, precipitation; 20, dissolution; 21, fixation and volatilization, alkali and acid; 22, electric attraction (as by amber); 23, magnetic movements; 24, sympathy and antipathy; 25, gravity and levity. â€" Lynn Thorndike, History of Magic & Experimental Science, vols. VII, pp. 610-13, 693-94; vol. VIII, pp. 223, 230. / Thorndike also assesses the arrangement of the work, its propositions, experiments, and inventions, the artificia, in order to give the impression that mathematical as well as experimental method is being employed. Among the specific artificial magic, the author examines the pores, subtle liquors, making artificial gems, "altering less precious stones to diamonds, changing red coral to white, and sticking a needle into one's arm or leg without feeling any pain." Distillation, elasticity, and wine are all treated. "Chemical recipes such as 'our antimonial panacea' and the preparation of aurum fulminans are frequent." / The three large volumes contain descriptions of perpetual motion machines, the pendulum, problems of motion and percussion, hydraulics, elasticity, alchemical and chemical experiments, distillation, machines, the vacuum, sound and acoustics, electricity and magnetism, meteorological instruments, etc., etc., etc. / The attractive plates depict numerous experiments and scientific instruments. / *Riccardi, II, 13- "questa importantissima opera, che puà considerarsi come una estesa enciclopedia fisico-meccanica." / "Book xxii … treats at great length of motion due to electric attraction and repulsion; Book xxiii., the same for magnetic attraction; magnetic clocks, p. 409; sympathetic compasses, p. 412; the compass and the dipping needle, Book xxiii., p. 227." â€" Wheeler Gift 197. / "While in Rome Schott had helped instruct Lana, who completed his theology at the Collegio Romano in the early fifties, when Kircher started to

         HERBARIO NUOVO MEDICO & CITTADINO ROMANO, CONFIGURE, CHE RAPPRESENTANO LE VIUE PIANTE, CHE NASCONO IN TUTTA EUROPA, & NELL INDIE ORIENTALI, & OCCIDENTALI

      Venetia: Presso Gian Giacomo Hertz, 1684. Published in 1585 at the direction of Pope Sixtus V and authored by his personal physician, this popular Italian herbal describes the properties and uses of medicinal herbs from Europe, the West Indies, and Asia and provides us with very detailed and often whimsical woodcut illustrations of salubrious plants. The present copy is from one of only a few early editions and is uncommon (OCLC locates eight copies, two of these in North America). In addition to being a botanist and a doctor, Castore Durante (ca. 1529-90) was a poet, and he wrote the Latin verses that appear as part of many descriptions. In the entry for the arbor tristis, for example, Durante compares the "melancholy tree" to a nymph, and the fanciful woodcut depicts a tree whose trunk is the body of a woman and whose limbs--with carefully detailed, oversized leaves--are her arms stretching up to the moon and stars above. Many of the woodcuts include a tiny human or animal, either tending or eating the plant, and a mere sprig of a fruit bush is shown as a full-grown tree in the midst of a landscape. These flights of imagination are the work of Leonardo Parasole, an Italian engraver and woodcutter, who took the name of his better-known wife, engraver and designer Isabella Parasole (sometimes mistakenly credited for the work here). Durante, whose position as the doctor of the pope no doubt contributed to his authority and to the market for his works, wrote other family medical guides on hygiene and nutrition.. 335 x 230 mm. (13 1/4 x 9 1/4"). 6 p.l., 480 pp, [14] leaves. Original parchment over boards, inked title on spine. In a custom-made gilt-titled folding cloth box. Large and attractive woodcut device on title, decorative headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, and NEARLY 1,000 WOODCUTS OF PLANTS in text. Title printed in red and black. Spine and joints wormed and torn above top and below bottom cord, boards slightly splayed, a few other small tears and slight soil, but a sound and not unsatisfying contemporary binding. Minor worming in upper margin of first few gatherings, one signature somewhat browned, a little browning elsewhere, two leaves torn in lower blank margin, but generally excellent internally, with text usually clean and fresh.Published in 1585 at the direction of Pope Sixtus V and authored by his personal physician, this popular Italian herbal describes the properties and uses of medicinal herbs from Europe, the West Indies, and Asia and provides us with very detailed and often whimsical woodcut illustrations of salubrious plants.

         Samenspraken van Desiderius Erasmus, Rotterdammer. Nieuwelijks uit het Latijn vertaalt, met noodige aanteekeningen door Pieter Rabus. Hiervoor gaat, De Vermomde Hofjonker, uit Erasmus schriften berijmt. Met byvoegsel van een Samenspraak van Erasmus, die tot dezen tijd toe verduistert, en nu voor d'eerstemaal in 't Latijn gedrukt is, vertaalt door den zelven.

      Rotterdam, By Johannes Borstius, Boekverkooper op den hoek van de groote Markt, 1684. 8vo. 2 parts in 1 volume: 18,665,(5),(2 blank); 25,(3 blank) p. Frontispiece. Vellum 16.5 cm Rare first edition of this translation (Ref: Vanderhaegen I, p.41) (Details: Frontispiece engraved by P. Peuteman, it depits Erasmus sitting amidst his conversation partners; in the foreground a satyr bullying Pope Julius II and kicking another cleric; a naked woman (naked truth?) tramples under her feet some scrolls, while removing the mask from a man's face; under this theologian the name Scotus, the scrolls are entitled Bullen. These last 2 figures refer to Erasmus' sneers at the late medieval theologian Duns Scotus, who was the principal butt of his anti-scholastic blows. Scotus' doctinal authority is symbolised by the papal bulls) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly soiled. Frontispiece cut short at the upper margin. Some small and old ink spots. Front flyleaf loosening) (Note: 'The Colloquia, like the Adagia, were written over a period of years and constantly enlarged as edition succeeded edition. From their earliest form of short models of Latin conversation and formulae of etiquette (composed at Paris in 1497 for the use of some pupils and first printed in 1518) they grew into 'a rich and motley collection of dialogues, each a master piece of literary form, well-knit, spontaneous, convincing, unsurpassed in lightness, vivacity and fluent Latin, each one a finished one-act play' (Huizinga). The Colloquia, full of witty and penetrating observations on ordinary day-to-day happenings as well as on the basic weakness of Church and society, are an invaluable mine of information about 16th century customs, institutions and social problems. Besides, their success as a schoolbook was unrivalled and the stream of editions and translations flowed almost uninterruptedly down to modern times'. (Gilhofer & Ranschburg GmbH, Catalogue 50, Erasmus, published on the 500th anniversary of his birth', Luzern, ca. 1967, p. 34) § This is the rare first edition of this translation. The second part (of 28 pages) consists of Conflictus Thaliae et Barbariei authore D. Erasmo, dat is Strijd tussen Thalie (eene der Zang-godinnen) en Barbaries (de Woestheid, of Bastaardy) Door D. Erasmus. Een geschrift dat nooit voor dezen is gedrukt. The translator Pieter Rabus, 1660-1702, was a famous man of letters in his days. As an enlightened author and journalist he wrote against superstition and intolerance. In 1686 he became Praeceptor of the Erasmianum in Rotterdam. Rabus tells in the preface to the second part that he was allowed to use a manuscript in possession of the Rotterdam preacher Johannes Schalkius, which contained this hitherto unknown dialogue of Erasmus. The dialogue, written in 1489, is about a quarrel between the Muse Thalia and Mrs. Barbarism, i.e the barbaric medieval use of Latin. The aim of the Conflictus is to ridicule the scholastic teachers of the Schola Latina of Zwolle, one of the most important and largest schools of that time in the Netherlands, because of the barbaric Latin they spoke. Erasmus also pokes fun of their poetic outpourings. In the following Ad lectorem Rabus argues further that the authenticity of the dialogue is proven, first by its title in the manuscript, which bears Erasmus' name. Secondly the style indicates that its author must be Erasmus. Rabus finds proof that Erasmus was the real author in a letter that Erasmus wrote to Kornelis van Gouda, in which he flogs certain teachers for their lack of knowledge of Latin, and expresses the fear that that kind of ignoramusses (illiteratissimi) will ruin our Thalia (nostram Thaliam). § This is the first edition of the translation of Rabus. The Dutch translation of the Conflictus is accompanied by the Latin text. The Conflictus was long time considered spurious. The Liege professor René Hoven, who produced its most recent scholarly edition, demonstrated, after Rabus, that Erasmus certainly is the author.

Volume 3 (tables) in original printed paper wrappers with green cloth spine.

      DSB X, pp. 221-222; Ward 1684; D.A. Young, Geological evidence for the age of the earth, p. 109. Complete first edition, including the tables (often lacking), of a standard work on stratigraphy and palaeontology by the famous Alcide d'Orbigny (1801-1857), "perhaps the most accomplished French paleontologist of the generation following Cuvier" (Young). In this work "he subdivided the Cretaceous System into 'stages', based on the notion that a typical fauna would be annihilated and replaced by a new fauna" (Young). He based his new classification of fossils on his research on geological strata, establishing the vital link between palaeontology and stratigraphic geology that has proved so fruitful for both disciplines. Many contemporary geologists opposed his stratigraphic ideas, but despite this controversy he was appointed professor of palaeontology at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1853. The work contains numerous wood-engraved illustrations by E. Salle, which show an enormous variety of plant and animal fossils, from tiny invertebrates to gigantic dinosaurs.In very good condition, with only some faint foxing on the first and last few pages. Bindings of the text volumes slightly rubbed along the extremities and worn along the corners; paper wrappers of the tables slightly soiled, but still in good condition.

Begun in 1633 by his father Giuseppe (1570-1639), the press passed firstly to Giacomo and to his brother Giandomenico (1619-1653), and then later to Lorenzo Filippo (1682-?); in 1738 it became the Calcografia Camerale, from 1870 until 1945 the Regia Calcografica, and today it is known as the Calcografia Nazionale. Here are conserved, amongst many others, the plates of Giambattista Piranesi (1720-1778). Giacomo De' Rossi was the most involved of all the various family members who ran the press, and he worked between 1638 and 1691, and was to take the company to the height of its success.

         The Anatomy of Humane Bodies Epitomized Wherein All the Parts of Man's Body, with Their Actions and Uses, Are Succinctly Described, According to the Newest Doctrine of the Most Accurate and Learned Modern Anatomists. The Second edition.

      J. Heptinstall, for Thomas Flesher, Angel & Crown, St Paul's Churchyard 1684 - Second edition, small thick octavo, pp (14), 590, with the imprimatur leaf, some age-toning and thumbing throughout, a little light staining in places, 16 anatomical plates (of which one is small and folding, repaired at one of the folds), a small neat name and address dated 1954 on the front endpaper, contemporary mottled calf, a little worn, neatly and sympathetically rebacked by Temple Bookbinders. Still an attractive copy of a scarce work. [Thomas Gibson, MD, 1647-1722, was born at Bampton in Westmorland. He graduated doctor of medicine at Leyden, 20th August, 1675, and was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 26th June, 1676. He is stated in the Annals of the College of Physicians to have been created doctor of medicine by the archbishop of Canterbury, 16th May, 1663 (age 16), and to have been admitted ad eundem, at Cambridge, 5th October, 1671. He was admitted an Honorary Fellow of the College of Physicians 30th September, 1680. Because he was a presbyterian he was removed from the list of Fellows when the college received a new charter under James II in 1687'. He was reinstated after the Glorious Revolution in 1688 when William and Mary came to the throne. He was physician-general to the army 1718-19. His second wife, Elizabeth, was the sixth daughter of Richard Cromwell, briefly Lord Protector (1658-1659)), the son of Oliver Cromwell. His book Anatomy of Humane Bodies epitomized went through eight editions, between 1682-1737, the first being published anonymously. It was a best seller. It was based on a revision of Alexander Read's Manuall of Anatomy (1634), which Gibson acknowledges, and in English, instead of Latin which had been obligatory before censorship and permission from the Stationers Company disappeared during the civil war and interregnum. The beautiful illustrations are taken from Vesalius's anatomical drawings.] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Wunder-voller Schauplatz der Heiligen Märtyrer, Und zwar vornehmlich Der um der Wahrheit und des Namens Christi willen auf allerley grausame Weise Getödteten Kinder, Von Unmündigen an, bis auf Fünffzehn-jährige, Nebst einem kurtzen Anhang von den Trübsalen und Verfolgungen der Gläubigen durch alle Secula N. Testaments (...) Von Friedrich Eberhard Collin.

      (56), 664, 183, (1) Seiten. Frakturdruck. OHNE den doppelseitigen Kupferstich. Rot-schwarzer Titel mit Druckermarke (Schiff mit Wind im Heck erreicht Hafen, unten Monogramm des Druckers) 8 (18 x 10,5 cm) Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden und rotgefärbtem Schnitt. Friedrich Eberhard Collin (1684-1727) war ein pietistischer Hofprediger zu Lobenstein. Eine Verfasserbiographie beinhaltet sein posthum erschienenes Werk 'Der Sieg der ersten Blut-zeugen Jesu Christi (...)'. Collins, der als Kleinkind mit seinen Eltern aus dem von den Franzosen belagerten Geburtsort Worms fliehen musste, studierte in Gießen und Jena Theologie bevor er Prediger dreier Gemeinden bei Wertheim wurde. Dieses Amt übte er wohl mit besonderer Wachsamkeit gegenüber seinen 'Schäfchen' aus, führte er doch penibel Buch über deren Namen, Kinder, Besitz geistlicher Drucke, etc. (Zu seiner nicht immer einfachen Zeit in Wertheim, vgl. auch Ritschl II, 539). 1723 wurde er vom Dienst suspendiert, tauchte jedoch schon im Folgejahr wieder als Schuldirektor auf, bevor ihn, ein weiteres Jahr später, der Graf Heinrich XV. Reuß zu Lobenstein zu seinem Hofprediger machte. In seine Zeit als Schulleiter fällt auch die Entstehung des vorliegenden Werkes, dessen Widmung er im Mai 1725 unterzeichnet. - Collins Werk ist exemplarisch für die durch den Pietismus hervorgebrachte moralische Erbauungsliteratur der Frühaufklärung. Theologische Literatur, zumal solche, die der breiter werdenden Leserschaft säkularer Werke eine starke religiöse Orientierungen des moralischen Handelns entgegensetzt, dominiert weiterhin das Buchwesen und befriedigt einen mit dem Pietismus steigenden Bedarf. Der Märtyer-Schauplatz teilt darüber hinaus in seiner Thematik und theatralen Metaphorik auch Tropen des barocken Dramas. Das Theater, das sich im 17. Jahrhundert auch als Werkzeug der konfessionellen Identitätsstiftung und Propagandamittel etablierte, will nicht die Realität abbilden, sondern präsentiert eine ständehierarchisch strukturierte und heilsgeschichtlich perspektivierte Welt, konzipiert als Theatrum mundi. Dazu gehören wesentlich die Märtyrerfiguren als erbauliche Exempel. Die inszenierte Atrocitas dient hierin schon bei Andreas Gryphius und anderen Dichtern der Mäßigung und Affektkontrolle des Rezipienten. - Der drastische Kupferstich, der durch Soldaten an Kindern verübte Gräueltaten zeigt, FEHLT. Eine Kopie des Stiches liegt bei. - Pergamenteinband etwas angeschmutzt und an den Innendeckeln stellenweise etwas gelöst. Rücken mit schwindendem handschriftlichen Rückentitel entrundet und vom Buchblock gelöst, Schnabelbildung am Frontschnitt. Innengelenke etwas abgeplatzt, das erste und letzte Blatt jeweils teilweise gelöst. Papier bis auf wenige schwache Braunflecken oder unmerkliche Spuren nur marginal färbender Wasserflecken gut erhalten. Trotz aller Alterspuren ein solides Exemplar des inhaltlich bemerkenswerten und recht seltenen Werkes.

         Autograph letter signed, to the Duchess of Aveiro.

      Agaña (Mariana Islands), 25 April 1684. Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed...' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the mission's patron the Duchess of Aveiro, sold by Maggs Brothers in their famous catalogue Australia and the South Seas of 1927. This specific letter was item 52 in the catalogue, which summarised the manuscript thus:'Father Solorzano tells how supplies for the Mariana Islands had been delayed by storms, but that the people of Manila had sent help to them under the command of Don Damian de Esplaña. The garrison had been away in the island of Rota, preparing the conquest of the island of Zaypan, and on its return voyage had nearly been lost in a great storm together with the governor and various friendly Indians, in all some three hundred persons.' "Added to this anxiety was another... which was that the bilander which was moored to the harbour with nine cables, broke away during the gale, and was finally smashed to pieces on the reefs off the shore, thereby destroying our hope of exploring the southern islands which lead to the unknown Austral lands and are the goal of our endeavours".'The writer goes on to tell how they had tried to obtain other boats for the purpose of exploring the islands in the South, and that the Governor having died Esplaña had been nominated in his stead...'We have been unable to trace whether this proposed expedition ever set sail'. (Maggs, catalogue 491, item 52, £52 10s).As various publications of the period attest, the Spanish and especially the colonists in Mexico continued to see the proposals of Quiros for the evangelisation and annexation of the southern land as a real possibility. In 1669 for example, Father Luis de San Vitores' Memorial, printed in Mexico, renewed Quiros' call (and quoted from him extensively) to lobby for the consolidation of a mission in the Mariana Islands as a stepping-stone to the colonization and conversion of the "Southern or Austral Islands"
